Historic Boleskine House once owned by Led Zeppelin star and infamous satanist gutted by massive blaze

A historic manor house once owned by Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page and occultist Aleister Crowley has been devastated in a huge blaze.

Boleskine House, in the Scottish Highlands, is still being doused by fire crews after a blaze was reported at around 1.40pm this afternoon.

Around 60 per cent of the building has already been destroyed but it was later established no-one was inside.

Crowley , who died in 1947 aged 73, was an occultist, mystic and magician known as “the Great Beast” and “the wickedest man in the world”.

He was a sexually-liberated recreational drug-taker long before the 1960s social revolution and followed a “Do what thou wilt” philosophy.

Interest in his teachings grew in the 1960s and rock stars such as Jimmy Page were influenced by his ideas.

Page bought the house at the height of Led Zeppelin’s fame in 1970 as a restoration project and a base for songwriting, but spent little time there and eventually sold it in 1992.

It has since been used as a private residence and a guest house, and was put up for sale in 2009 for £17.

The estate has been linked to a number of dark incidents over the years, including at least two violent deaths.

Crowley and his devil-worshipping followers are said to have used the estate to make talismans and offered animal sacrifices to Satan.
